Perry Changes Tune on Possible White House Bid
For months, Texas Gov. Rick Perry has given the same firm response to potential donors and Republican higher-ups, saying he has no interest in running for the White House in 2012.

But over the past two weeks, political advisers and friends say, Mr. Perry has changed his tune on a possible presidential campaign. In private conversations, they say, the three-term governor said he worries that the current GOP contenders have yet to stir real excitement within the party and may struggle when facing President Barack Obama.
